the Switch House

We visited the Switch House gallery extension to the Tate Modern, it was freezing cold today and especially cold walking across the Millenium Bridge. The building adds nothing to the current power station site of the Tate Modern, it’s entrance makes no sense in relation to the Tate building, it’s even more confusing once you get inside… enough said.

We were freezing after walking across that cold river bridge and had a hot drink in the new cafe and went to see one of the exhibitions.  The Building appears huge, a behemoth from the outside but inside is another story.

The Rebecca Horn exhibition was wonderful I must say, and a joy.  However there wasn’t much else, considering this is a new art gallery in London – a rare thing nowadays.  As someone said on twitter, the money would have been better spent going to the cash strapped regions.
